Take Her Look [For Less]

Every now and then, someone enters the public realm and captures the world’s attention with their style, elegance and class. And right now, all eyes are on none other than Mrs. Amal Clooney.

Yahoo Style Editors reported today that Clooney was spotted in London after a business meeting wearing a tweed lilac dress and matching blazer with a pale yellow trim by Giambattista Valli. She styled the springy suit with a beautiful bone colored pointy-toe pump from Gianvito Rossi and Dior Bar Bag as her ‘work’ bag.

Although Mrs. Clooney’s dress/blazer combination cannot be priced, her shoes are available at Barney’s New York in black for $995. Her gorgeous Dior bag, the object of our envy and today’s “Take Her Look [For Less], also has an elusive price tag; Dior only releases pricing upon request, but according to Bagreporter.com, Dior bags as of November 2013 started at $1,450. So as much as we all love Clooney’s impeccable style, it looks like we won’t be purchasing any of the exact pieces she’s wearing any time soon!

But that doesn’t mean we can’t find similar pieces for a fraction of the cost! We found this strikingly similar (minus the) leather shopper tote from Express that mimics the handle style and structure of the Dior bag; it even has a dangling tag from one of the handles just like Clooney’s bag! However, you won’t have to take out a loan to purchase this bag – it’s only $69.90! If that’s not enough, it comes in two colors: black (shown) and a vibrant red!

So if you love Amal Clooney’s style but can’t afford even a thread off of one of her outfits (don’t feel bad – we can’t afford it either!), there are always ways to mimic her style without paying the price for it. Don’t have the dough for Clooney’s Dior Bar Bag? Try out this great option from Express; it’s an accessible way to achieve Clooney’s look without breaking your budget.
